WJAAS - Kurashima Labs and the making of a tube


Amazing, old timey vacuum-tubes workmanship

Toshiaku-san masterpieces... worthwhile looking at WE 171A irons re-winding and Toshi's amps layout


Thanks to Orrin for hinting this.

Hi Kishor... tasty choice;-) I only know this, http://www.tubesusa.com/toshi.html, where you could ask about a Japanese link or something...

Unfortunately not... a friend from Canada did and was quite impressed... on my part, after looking at the amps inner and the broad use of Allen-Bradley's resistors and Paper in Oil caps and those so cool WE 171A irons rewinded with point-to-point soldering... I simply assume the sound to be quite euphonic and romantic, in the best vintage realm and heritage.
